Welcome to the Fairview Primary School Board. The Fairview Board is a group of interested parents, community members and staff who are actively involved in the governance of our school. This group helps to shape our direction and monitors our progress towards it. They work on policy and bring a range of voices and views to the decision making processes of our school. They generally meet once per term.
The Boards responsibility for developing and overseeing the implementation of the school’s strategic plan. The Board does not have a role in the day-to-day running of the school, this is the responsibility of the Principal and school leadership team. Board members hold their position for 3 years and nominations for election to the Board will be advertised early in the new year.
